Probably one of the most notable Burmese tourist attraction outside of Bagan, the U Pein Teak Bridge is an interesting conglomeration of utility, beauty and tourists. Your standard package tourist will arrive, get in a boat, watch the sunset and then promptly depart. But part of the beauty of the bridge is that it is still highly utilitarian. The locals use it day in and day out as a method of crossing the lake. People ride bikes across, there are fishermen on all sides and people tilling the fields nearby. I found it to be one of those rare tourist destinations that hasn’t been completely corrupted by tourists. Yes, there are loads of people trying to sell you things, but it has yet to be ruined by tourism.
